Brief Answer: Can be due to Keppra. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. Keppra can cause blurring of vision; double vision or raised pressure in the eyes. If only one of the eyes is affected then any pathology related to the eye also needs to be ruled out first. In case no eye pathology is detected then you can consider getting doses of keppra adjusted from his neurologist according to the severity of epilepsy. I hope this answers your query. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Praveen Tayal.
